If possession of new property is not taken before last date of return filing (31st July, 2011), the gains amount had to be deposited into capital gain scheme account and future payments to builder/seller of new property had to be done from this account.

As you did not deposited amount into capital gain account before end date, income tax department now can ask you for income tax payment on long term gains.

Please see below method for computation of long term gains and income tax:
Purchase Year = A, Purchase Cost = P, Cost Inflation Index (CII) for purchase year = X
Sale Year = B, Selling price = Q, CII for sale year = Y
Indexed Purchase price = P x (Y/X) = R
Long term capital gain = Q - R = S
Income tax on capital gain = S x 20%
